Mathis Esterhazy

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Mathis Esterhazy (born February 25, 1958 in Vienna, Austria) is an Austrian artist and designer.

Life and Work[edit]

Mathis Esterhazy started his career in Vienna, Austria.[1] in the early eighties and amongst others co-operated with the Austrian artist Franz West until 1991 [2] for exhibitions like 1987 "Skulptur Projekte Münster": Eo Ipso, 1989 Franz West im Kunsthistorischen Museum, KHM Wien, 1989 Possibilities, P.S.1 New York. Esterhazy subsequently created his specific "bausprache" - a constructional language based on the reduction of form and objects. He manufactures all his products from the outset in his own studio. As a designer he developed and produced custom-built furniture for private and public clients [3] and for exhibition design in various museums like the MAK—Austrian Museum of Applied Arts and Contemporary Art, Vienna (vitrines for Günther Förg's intervention1993-2013) [4], the Jewish Museum Vienna (1996: Ein Lied der Vernunft - Schach: Die Welt in 64 Feldern, 1998: Der schejne Jid and 1999: Bezalel). Mathis Esterhazy contributed specifically designed furniture to the Museum der Weltkulturen (Museum of the World's Cultures), Frankfurt/Main as of 2011 [5]. The acquirement of a digital embroidery machine and its original use led to new methods of workmanship recently [6] In 2015 Esterhazy moved the production with his workshop to Rogašovci, Slovenia.
